We can start the divorce process for you and guide you through the process in a conciliatory and constructive way. We will advise you of the procedure involved from the outset and will keep you informed at each stage of the proceedings. Alternatively, if you wish to deal with the divorce proceedings yourself we can advise you about the Court process and check the paperwork on your behalf before you submit it to the Court.
There is only one ground for divorce namely irretrievable breakdown, which is caused in one of five ways.
The person who issues the divorce is known as the Petitioner and the other party is known as the Respondent.
The divorce itself will take approximately 4 to 6 months from issue at the Court to finalisation, which is known as decree absolute.
The divorce proceedings are issued at a Family Court and there is no need to attend the Court unless there is a dispute as to the cost of the divorce proceedings, in which case you may wish to attend the decree nisi appointment to speak to the Judge about the issue of costs.
